How has your 2021 been so far? After the roller coaster year of 2020, many of us have great expectations for 2021. Despite all of the hardships of 2020, I still feel a sense of overwhelming gratitude. The Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas distributed more than 8.5 million meals to people facing hunger in 2020. That's the most we've ever distributed in one year in our 37-year history!
This incredible accomplishment is because of you -- our generous donors. You rose to the occasion and gave generously to ensure that your neighbors had food on their tables during a very difficult year. The lyrics of Jackie DeShannon's 1969 song Put a Little Love in your Heart keeps running through my mind. I've shared them with you below.
Your generosity has made the world a better place.
